On Realism in Music
AbstractThe history of music does not consider realism as a style tied up to a certain era. A realistic mode of expression, however, crystallized in the 19th century. Realism in music can be regarded as a function of a certain mode of expression that, by means of imitation, description, word, symbol and emotion, complements a naturalistic, descriptive, poetic, symbolic and psychological realistic approach. An archetypal model of a realistic mode of expression was formed in the music of the ancient world in accordance with the origins of musical thought to become one of aesthetic-structural categories of West-European music.
